Istanbul 2012

The MHTF collaborated with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and PATH to convene a technical meeting, Malaria in Pregnancy: A Solvable Problem—Bringing the Maternal Health and Malaria Communities Together, in Istanbul, Turkey from 26-28 June 2012.

The meeting focused on sharing lessons learned from sub-Saharan African countries and projects that have attempted to achieve high coverage of malaria control for pregnant women, identifying the main challenges to addressing malaria in pregnancy (MiP) in sub-Saharan Africa, exploring opportunities for collaboration and innovation and determining next steps to improve the partnership between the malaria and maternal health communities. The meeting also served as a platform for colleagues to share recent and emerging findings on the determinants of coverage of MiP interventions—as well as the effectiveness of the delivery of those interventions.
